First Cherenkov Telescopes in Czechia

Abstract

Unique Cherenkov telescopes have successfully been installed at the Ondřejov Observatory near Prague. There are two telescopes at the site, which are now the largest optical telescopes in the Czech Republic. They have been developed in the frame of the Charenkov Telescope Array Observatory, and evaluated as performing telescopes in the high energy region above 1 TeV.
